The guests were treated to an exclusively crafted lunch featuring intriguing International and regional delicacies such as turkey and duck from the United States. The USA Poultry & Egg Export Council (USAPEEC) objective was simple yet profound: to introduce the wonders of American poultry.

What distinguishes American poultry is its constant dedication to quality. US poultry producers adhere to some of the world’s most stringent quality and safety standards. It’s a commitment that ensures every bite of US poultry is not just flavourful but safe, nutritious, and of the highest quality.

Addressing the gathering Clay Hamilton said, “I am very happy to have each one of you here for this poultry protein-rich gourmet extravaganza. I look forward to a growing partnership between India and The US and what the future holds for collaboration on poultry protein in India.”

Shiven Khanna, a representative from USAPEEC, opined, “Look for US Poultry at Bougie, Wolf and Miso Sexy, some of the most popular restaurants in the city. In the coming months, we will also target the catering markets specifically for US Duck & Turkey.”

Attendees had the opportunity to indulge in an unforgettable gastronomic journey, exploring the rich flavours and textures of US poultry which were curated by Chef Sagar Bajaj – Culinary Head, First Fiddle Hospitality. Chef Bajaj said, “We are excited to partner with USAPEEC to bring the best of US poultry to our patrons. This collaboration aligns perfectly with our commitment to offering exceptional dining experiences, and we look forward to incorporating US poultry into our menus across our restaurants.”

The culinary landscape of India’s food service sector has long been intertwined with the traditional wet market approach, particularly when it comes to sourcing poultry products. The concept of Frozen Poultry has emerged as a relatively novel offering and requires awareness regarding its proper handling. The USAPEEC is fast changing this as it brings to the table vast options, convenience and possibilities with Frozen Poultry, including US Turkey and duck.
